Free agent OT Bryant McKinnie had his car repossessed and is having financial problems.
McKinnie owes his lawyers over $21,000 from a previous matter, and his Infiniti QX56 will be auctioned off in order to pay the tab. It's not the first time McKinnie has been in hot water money-wise. A strip club claimed soon-to-be 35-year-old McKinnie racked up close to $400,000 in unpaid bills. The free agent says he's willing to play right tackle. He simply needs money.

The National Football Post's Aaron Wilson reports the Dolphins haven't closed the door on re-signing free agent Bryant McKinnie as their right tackle.

Per Wilson, it's "most likely" McKinnie signs somewhere after the draft. Going on 35, McKinnie appeared near the end of the line last season, and has yet to take a visit in free agency. He'd almost certainly have to compete for the right-tackle job in Miami.

Free agent Bryant McKinnie said he's willing to play right tackle.

McKinnie, 35 in September, also said he's willing to compete for a starting job. He's doing anything to try and make himself more appealing to a market that has expressed zero interest in McKinnie to this point. His playing days may be over. McKinnie simply didn't put any good play on film in 2013.

The Miami Herald confirms the Dolphins have not had any recent contract talks with free agent LT Bryant McKinnie.

McKinnie was highly ineffective last year and isn't going to be re-signed, as expected. He looked to be near the end of the line with Miami and likely won't require more than a veteran minimum contract. Given his history of weight issues, McKinnie could struggle to find any interest on the open market.

Free agent Bryant McKinnie insists he's "getting (his) weight down."

The fact that this is still an issue for McKinnie should tell you all you need to know about his "market." McKinnie has never been serious about staying in shape, and now going on 35, he's going to receive zero benefit of the doubt in free agency. McKinnie was highly ineffective for both the Dolphins and Ravens last season. It's possible he's reached the end.

Bryant McKinnie is expected to start at left tackle this week against the Patriots.

The Dolphins acquired McKinnie from the Ravens on Monday. Miami has had serious offensive line issues, so installing McKinnie as an immediate starter on Ryan Tannehill's blind side can't hurt. Jonathan Martin is expected to shift over to right tackle with Tyson Clabo moving to the bench. McKinnie, 34, won't be a savior but it will be hard to play worse than Martin and Clabo have.

The Miami Herald expects the Dolphins to install Bryant McKinnie at left tackle, shifting Jonathan Martin to the right side.

That would send RT Tyson Clabo to the bench. The Dolphins have remained coy, but McKinnie was spending time at left tackle in Tuesday's practice. Speaking to ESPN's James Walker, McKinnie said the blindside was "all he knows." We'd suspect that's where he'll end up, if not in Week 8, then Week 9.

Dolphins acquired OT Bryant McKinnie from the Ravens.

The Ravens are getting a conditional "late-round" pick. McKinnie was benched after Week 5 by the Ravens, but is well worth a flier for the Dolphins, who are getting league-worst tackle play that's been derailing GM Jeff Ireland's masterplan. It's quite possible McKinnie will be immediately installed on the blindside, shifting LT Jonathan Martin to the right and Tyson Clabo to the bench. Clabo got humiliated in Sunday's loss to the Bills. Of course, it's also possible McKinnie has nothing left at age 34, and will end up on the bench.

The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens will attempt to trade LT Bryant McKinnie.

The Ravens acquired LT Eugene Monroe from the Jaguars late Tuesday night, forcing McKinnie back into a reserve role. Mount McKinnie signed a two-year, $6.3 million deal in May, so he's signed through the 2014 season and his 2013 salary is guaranteed. Teams that could possibly use a left tackle for the remainder of this season are the Broncos, Packers, Dolphins, and Seahawks.
Wed, Oct 2, 2013 01:52:00 PM

Bryant McKinnie's $1 million base salary is guaranteed for the season.

The Baltimore Sun doesn't expect the Ravens to cut McKinnie in the wake of the Eugene Monroe trade. He's already been paid a $2 million signing bonus and a $200,000 reporting bonus as part of the deal he signed in May. McKinnie will just fade into a backup role, where he figures to fall even further out of shape and party even harder. Sweet Pea will be thrilled.
Wed, Oct 2, 2013 09:13:00 AM

Ravens LT Bryant McKinnie revealed he weighed 356 pounds upon reporting to training camp.

It's actually not that heavy for Mount McKinnie, who stands 6-foot-8 and has regularly been listed in the 360-pound range. McKinnie's goal is to get down to 346 before Week 1. The Ravens' O-Line projects as a strength this year with McKinnie on Joe Flacco's blindside, Kelechi Osemele and Marshal Yanda at guard, Gino Gradkowski at center, and Michael Oher at right tackle.

Ravens LT Bryant McKinnie couldn't finish practice on Friday, his first with the team after missing the first day for reporting overweight.

Per beat writer Aaron Wilson, McKinnie was "clearly exhausted at times" and his "pad level was way too high," suggesting the 33-year-old still has "a lot of work to do." McKinnie reported to the team too heavy on Thursday, and insisted he only needed to shed some "water weight." He'll sweat it out shortly.

Ravens LT Bryant McKinnie has resumed practicing at training camp after missing the first day for reporting overweight.

McKinnie insisted he only needed to drop "water weight" when he was held out of the Ravens' first camp practice, and beat writer Aaron Wilson suggests the team was simply trying to make a "point." McKinnie is still in far better condition than he's been for recent training camps. He'll be the Ravens' Week 1 left tackle.
Fri, Jul 26, 2013 02:40:00 PM

Ravens LT Bryant McKinnie reported to camp above his prescribed weight and won't practice until he drops some pounds.

Apparently he only needs to lose "water weight." Still, this comes ten days after a Baltimore Sun report claimed McKinnie showed up to spring workouts in "significantly" better shape than years past. Weight management has always been an issue for McKinnie, and it doesn't appear that will ever change. The Ravens re-signed the 33-year-old to a two-year deal in May. McKinnie's contract included a $2 million signing bonus and he's still easily Baltimore's best left tackle option, so the team will wait it out while McKinnie sweats it out. Literally.
Thu, Jul 25, 2013 04:30:00 PM

Ravens LT Bryant McKinnie showed up to offseason workouts in "significantly" better shape than he was "at any point" in last year's training camp.

The Ravens' internal hope is McKinnie will perform for 16 games as he did during Baltimore's four-game playoff run, when McKinnie allowed just two sacks and three quarterback hits in 286 snaps. From left to right, the Ravens' Week 1 O-Line is expected to read LT McKinnie, LG Kelechi Osemele, C Gino Gradkowski, RG Marshal Yanda, and RT Michael Oher. It's a very talented group.
